This was a fun, fairly fast read. I didn’t find it as gripping as the first book in the series, but I’m not at all sorry I read it. It was fascinating to try to imagine our world as viewed through the lens of people who have never seen sunlight or trees. It was also interesting to see the merging of two cultures in this story—that’s something you don’t get to see in books very often.

I didn’t find this book as interesting as the first story, but it was a good read, all the same. The characters were well-drawn, and I felt immersed in the Sparks world from the first few chapters. If you enjoyed The City of Ember, I’d recommend you read this book, too. A fun continuation of the series!… (plus d'informations)

Lina and Doon have led the citizens of Ember to an exciting new world. They've been given safe haven in a small village called Sparks, a place filled with color and life. But they're not out of danger yet. Although Sparks seems like the answer the long-suffering Emberites have been hoping for, tempers soon escalate. The villagers have never had to share their world before, and it only takes a tiny "spark" to ignite a battle between the two struggling groups. Lina and Doon will have to work together to avoid a disaster not only for their people, but also for the people of Sparks.… (plus d'informations)

This book is a great book for middle schoolers because it adds concepts of science and fiction to keep the readers engaged in what they are reading. This book is full of adventure and is exciting, while it also educational. It is a great book to use for a read-aloud.
